This Sunday, while Lisa & Kate were in San Diego for the 4th Grade Mission report, DM Chase came over and taught us to play Pathfinder.
We started the day with a drive to Barnes & Noble to pick up the Core Rule Book.
Then back home for Character Creation and Pizza.
DM Chase had an old 3.5 conversion module to run us through to get us used to the system--he had worked with DM Scott to set up some back ground to get us into the Skull & Shackles adventure path. I am new to Pathfinder and all of this Adventure Path, but any game that involved dice, dragons, and Pirates is my kind of game.
Jack and I are actually very fired up for this--we went to the Library and got a bunch of Pirate books. I am listening to Smithsonian Pirate Song albums--the whole shebang, we are all in.
Cody joined us for a while--he was playing Hobit the Halfling rogue.
Dylan from the Awesome Crew came by--he was playing a bow ranger named Purtsa the Elf.
Jack is playing a Dwarf--the tough boarding party kind of dwarf. Any Pathfinder experts with min/max tips we could really use some help with this Character--we want like a charging brawler that is hard to hit. We have a tin can that gets beaten by a skeleton dog!
Also, Jake from next door stopped by and we quickly created a Cleric for him--Pathfinder healing harkens back to the pre-4E days in which healing was VERY important--and we had none! Late guy gets to be the healer, right?
I am playing a gnome bard that is still unamed. Character concept is also still evolving--I am thinking that he is a kind of weather obsessed more fae then steampunk gnome, but I keep falling back into this kind of Shme archetype that I am really not interested in. We shall see how he develops--I have chosen Accordian for my instrument, but that interfers with combat--but I just cannot pass up the chance for Weird Al jokes.
Need some new dice for this.
The table provided a ton of space.
This is how all roles should be made.
Chase used Dungeon Tiles that came with the module & were perfect.
Jack build Cody a knight.
And Cody had a very fin time--look at that focus on a four year old!
I think that only Chase got a crit!
